A pri­vate school in Mi­ami is of­fer­ing par­ents a $120 bul­let­proof plate to fit in­side their child’s back­pack. The flex­i­ble panel can stop most hand­gun bul­lets and weighs only 1 pound, says chief of se­cu­rity Ge­orge Gulla of Florida Chris­tian School. “I’d rather be pre­pared for the worst than be stuck af­ter say­ing, ‘Wow, I wish we would’ve done that,’” Gulla ex­plained. “We want to pro­tect our stu­dents’ cen­ter mass.”
